Argentina have recalled their star Lionel Messi. He has been called back for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
Argentina is competing with Brazil and Uruguay in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. Argentina will play Uruguay on November 13 and Brazil on November 17. For both games, coach Lionel Scaloni has included Messi in the national team.
With 31 points from 11 games, Brazil tops the South American continent’s selection for the World Cup. Second-placed Argentina have 25 points from 11 games. Ecuador is third with 17 points from 12 games.
At least 4 and at most 5 teams from South America play in the World Cup. Therefore, it is seen that Argentina does not want to take rickshaws without Messi.
Meanwhile, French club Paris Saint-Germain PSG has expressed dissatisfaction with the inclusion of star striker Messi in the national team. Leonardo, Sporting Director of PSG, expressed dissatisfaction saying that the injured player was called to the team.
Messi has injured his right knee. Messi has been absent from PSG’s last two games due to injury. Messi, who joined PSG from Spanish club Barcelona this season, has yet to score in France’s domestic league (League 1). However, in the Champions League, he has already scored three goals for PSG.
